MODERN STATUS: the valid (while not the oldest) name of a non-accepted, paraphyletic taxon.

COMMENT. The oldest name of this taxon Nomoneura Brauer 1885 is probably a misprint of the name Homoneura, which was originally given for a taxon opposed to Heteroneura (Brauer 1885 ). The corrected nane Homoneura Enderlein 1903 was published later than the name Oothecaria Verhoeff 1902, thus can be regarded as its junior synonym.
